Tell us your first mmorpg experience, or does you even know mmorpg mean at that time. When you start it and why you quit it. Is there any interest in the game, that make you keep playing..
My first mmorpg is Lineage 1, back in Nov 1999, That game is so addictive. I play like 40+ a week, or more. The game is in 2d, (similar like Diablo2 style). But the difference it have like mostly one time is 1200+ player on at same time. This game is about grinding, hunting boss, Pk, siege.
This game is not about level, it all about the gears. Also lv up is time consuming, each lv take a while to lv up. Also hunting boss is big challenge because you have to find the boss (spawn every 1-2hr, big reward or sometime no reward for boss) also other ppl might pk you.
The down fall of Lineage, i grief over the game because it is all about luck. When you hunt alot of boss it alway give you crap, try to upgrade a +4 item to +5 it failed( it mean your item gone forever) There goes like 3hr gaming time.. average i make 50k per hour with hunting it is so boring..
